craig davidson is coming to town on january 23

craig davidson, celebrated author of "rust and bone" and "cataract city" will join us to discuss his recent memoir, "precious cargo: my year driving the kids on school bus 3077", a chronicle of the year Davidson operated a school bus for a group of handicapped children in suburban Calgary.

craig is well known to his followers as an enthusiastic researcher and keen observer of his subjects. join us on january 23 to hear more about this and any other question you want to toss his way!

... Craig Davidson’s Precious Cargo [is] an almost singular accomplishment – a work of non-fiction that’s a pleasure to read, despite being about an able-bodied man who decides to hang out with disabled people.

The book’s skillfulness shouldn’t be a surprise. Toronto-born Davidson is an accomplished novelist: his most recent, Cataract City, was short-listed for the Giller prize while his first book of stories, Rust and Bone, became a harrowing Golden Globes-nominated film. He also writes thrillers and horror stories under a pair of pseudonyms. He knows how to kick a story along.
